bash seg faults


Hey all,

I'm fairly new with openBSD and am trying to install bash. I've got ports and have 'make installed' in the bash dir. When I run bash it gives me a core dump. I don't know what to look for in the core file. Can anyone help me with this ?

It almost sounds like you're trying to run the ELF version on the previous binary format of vis versa.

What version of OpenBSD and did you do cd /usr && cvs -q up -Pd ports before you built bash?

Ahh, I knew I saw this somewhere before. Try doing make install from /usr/ports/shells/bash2 as suggested in this thread on BSD forums

Also, make sure you cvs up your ports first.

ports confusion

Thanks Chort, I appreciate the help.

I wasn't updating with cvs before when I was getting the fault. I've since done this:

tar -xvzf ports.tar.gz
cvs -d anoncvs@anoncvs1.ca.openbsd.org:/cvs update -r OPENBSD_3_4 -dP

but to no avail.
I get alot of cvs comments about the "Makefile is no longer in the repository". It systematically gets rid of every make file. Maybe i've just got the wrong dir or something.

Thanks again,
-Kilka

Did you make sure you were in /usr/ports when you executed the above command? Try reading this section of the OpenBSD site (if you haven't already) http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html

Your command looks right, the only thing I can think of is that you were in the wrong directory. Also, how did you install? the OPENBSD_3_4 tag is for "stable" which is -RELEASE + all patches (up to 8 now I think). If you installed from a snapshot then you want to work with -CURRENT which has no tag (drop the whole -r bit).
